Re: Front valance oblong plug?

I would think myself lucky that someone actually has them for sale....the finishing touch for a £100k car....and far better value than a silmilar size keyring for £1k.....Steve

Re: 4.2 Clutch cover measurement

Hi Geoff.....its the clutch cover that bolts to the flywheel......if you have one loose not bolted down its the measurement from the edge that touches the flywheel to the face that contacts the release bearing....so if you lay it on a flat surface and measure the depth if that makes sense...thanks.....

Re: Rear Hub issue

Hi Andy...do you mean the nut on the end of the splined shaft..if so its in the manual 140ft/lb.....but beware the rear hub is nothing like the fronts...the rear has to be set up useing spacers that you need to measure with a dial guage...suggest you read the relevant section in the service manual.....

Re: Feeling a little low!

Hi Steve..if your rear is measuring low it suggests that your springs are weak....you already know your tyres dont help.....so replacement springs should be the first thing to do....if the car is still too low for you after this spacers can be added... Steve
